Weather’s Hot, But Not Extreme

Across-the-board 30% Savings through July 14th for BatesRewards members

Now that we have all settled into July, we can agree that it is indeed summer weather, but not to the extreme. Compared to last year where it seemed we were roasting, we have experienced a comparatively cooler and wetter beginning to summer. With high temperatures generally in the low 90’s (even upper 80’s some days) and scattered showers, everything seems to be growing well. 

It is a great time to think about applying organic fertilizer to the gardens/landscape. Organic fertilizers are great in that they release their nutrition slowly compared to chemical fertilizers. This alleviates concerns of burning tender plants. In fact, it is almost impossible to over-apply organic fertilizer. That is good news for those of us who may at times be a bit hap-hazard when taking on such tasks. We carry a complete line of Espoma® brand of organic fertilizers for any plant in your landscape. This is the same fertilizer we use here at Bates Nursery. 

The beauty of container-grown plants is most appreciated at this time of year. In years past, thinking of planting in the summer was crazy talk; now commonplace. Container-grown plants never suffer from transplant shock as can balled and burlapped plants: their roots are never cut. That is great news for avid gardeners, with effects from seasonal swings held to a minimum. To be sure, watering in the summer takes on a heightened sense of urgency, but you are already watering spring plantings all summer anyway…so what’s a few more?
